Yosemite on E5450


Recommended Posts



did anyone successfully install OS X Yosemite on Dell Latitude E5450?


Intel Core i5-4310U
14" 1920x1080 Intel HD 4400

Dualband Intel 7265 AC WLAN => replace with xyz


I think, legacy boot is not possible - i have to use UEFI boot with Clover.


Thanks a lot.

Are you sure about the specs or model?

E5450 should have the Core M processor (Broadwell) with HD 5500

E5440 would have the specs you have listed (Haswell) ...


Clover UEFI would work on either system.



Looks like Dell does offer 4th or 5th Gen Core for this model.

Generally on Dell System:

Exx20 = SandyBridge

Exx30 = IvyBridge

Exx40 = Haswell

Exx50 = Broadwell


To get started, check this guide

thanks a lot.



5. Clover bootloader screen shows up, press F4 (this will dump your dsdt, ssdt), and shutdown.
6. Use another Mac, download HVT here, run the tool and install Tools > MacIASL, run MacIASL, go to Preferences and set to ACPI 5.0, then open /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin/dsdt.aml in CLOVER USB drive. Click Compile, you will see 2 errors. Select the first error, you will see lots of Zero, delete them all. Click compile, you will see 1 error left.
Click Patch button, download the patch here and apply:
https://www.dropbox....x40 patches.txt
Click Compile to check for errors, if no error (ignore warnings), you can save the file with File Format: ACPI Machine Language Library, name DSDT.aml to /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched/ (of CLOVER USB).


Point 1 to 5 => all fine :-P


I pressed F4 and used my MacBookPro 10.10.4 to instal MacIASL (Hackintosh Vietnam Tool 1.9.4 20150707). I set ACPI in MacIASL to 5.0 and opened the dsdt.aml from /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin/.


Please, see the Error.png in the appendix. What's wrong with my dsdt.aml?

It's probably the line above that erroneous, maybe expecting

Arg0 ()

rather than just


Furthermore, a Return statement is usually the last one in any part of DSDT code with nohing right immediately after except a closing "}".

Thanks for patching the DSDT.aml :)
After booting from USB (with your patched DSDT.aml in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched) - there ist the following error:
panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff00000sfb04): "Unable to find driver for this platform: \"ACPI\".\n"0/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-2782.10.72/iokit/KernelIOPlatformExport.cpp:1598



with -v, there is the same error msg and no more informations.

thanks for your bootpack :)


In the appendix is a copy of the content in [uSB-Clover]/EFI/


I installed your kexts from Other/SLE/* with kextwizard to [uSB-MAC-Install]/System/L.../E...


Now, there is an error with Bluetooth... Should i disable Bluetooth in BIOS?

Sorry, I meant to install the kexts in SLE after you have a running OS X, but I don't think there's any ill-effect having them in the Installer.

Does this system have an nvidia card too?

Try enabling the following under Boot with Clover Configurator




As always, go to the BIOS, reset all to default and only enable AHCI in SATA Operations
